“Birthday and Rainy day stalwart”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

We have had a membership here for years and the kids like going here on rainy days. The kiddie birthday parties are pretty good as well, and there are a few night time events per year to. Reciprocal agreements with some other museums to boot. Worth it.

“Great for a rainy day”
Reviewed 27 July 2013 via mobile

If you have younger (3-8 yr old) children or grandchildren there isn't a better place to be on a rainy day. Lots of hands on stuff for the kids to do. Plus check their website for special guests that add to the enjoyment. Kraft rooms, doctor's office, kitchen playroom, dinosaurs, spaceships and even an outdoor play area will keep the little ones busy for hours.

“Not bad for the 3-8 set”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

We used half off tickets from our local library but even at full price it's not a bad deal. There was enough to keep my 5 year old occupied for about 3 hours and he would have stayed longer if he could and mentioned wanting to come back when it was warmer outside. It had ample free parking and the staff was friendly. It was a nice relaxing afternoon.

“Good place off the beaten path to take the kids!”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

I found this place when searching for new things to do with the kids. I was surprised to see some negatives things said about it on here so I went to check it out. It sits in downtown North Easton off Route 24 near Brockton. I had never been down to this area and is was an easy ride.

This place is in an old fire station which was remodeled for this museum. It is 3 floors and you can still see remnants of the old station which is cool. They even have old pics on the wall showing old fire engines and the fire team that was housed here. The inside is nice and small which is adequate for little kids like 2-5. The good thing about this place, it is manageable compared to the craziness of the Boston Children's Museum. It is easier to get in and out and is less crowded and you don't have to pay for parking. The admission is $7.50 and the best thing is if you are a member of the Boston museum, you get in free on the reciprocal program and vice versa. The inside is designed almost like Boston with various hands on exhibits and things to touch and play with. The rocket ship is cool with buttons and there is a pirate ship and a fireman's pole, dinosaurs, puppet theatre, doctors office etc. Lots of things to climb on and interact with. The stuff is in good shape and it is clean with restrooms and hand sanitizer. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they even host birthday parties. Highly recommended.
